Please read all of Celcus’ fine write up on the tourists stopping by St. Louis Cemetery No. 3 on Friday during Ashely Morris’ funeral:

…it was clear they understood that they were witnessing something extraordinary, something ancient and primal, and something wholly authentic. This (let’s face it) totally bizarre mix of people crying, dancing and celebrating in a cemetery, merging grief with the joy of living, is something they will take home to the land of beige boxes, or wherever it was they were from. A centerpiece of their travel stories will, no doubt, revolve around this remarkable thing that they witnessed. And somewhere, someone will understand, if only for a moment, why we live here.

And there will be one less mook in this world. Nice one, Ashley.
